(The filmmaker won an Academy Award for “Breathing Lessons: The Life and Work of Mark O’Brien,” her 1996 short documentary about the Berkeley writer confined to an iron lung.).

Lively and righteous work of art: It took Brooklyn artist Archie Rand five years to assemble “The 613,” a collage-like work consisting of 613 16-by-20-inch paintings reflecting the requirements for a Jewish person to live a righteous life. If it sounds like a somber, dogmatic affair, it is apparently anything but; the New York Times describes the work as a combination of “comics and pulp fiction book jackets, a dash of Mad Magazine, a spoonful of “Tales from the Crypt,” some grotesques, some superheroes, always action, emotion, drama.” The 17,000-square-foot work comes to the Jewish Contemporary Museum beginning July 20. Details: Through Oct. 22; museum open daily except Wednesdays; $12-$14 (18 and under free); thecjm.org.— Randy McMullen, Staff.
